Print a jasper document via the command line
This is almost completely based on the great work by Fortes Informática, with the gem jasper-rails. I built this out of necessity for a project that wouldn't run jasper-rails on top of Ubuntu + nginx + Passenger.
- Prawn, a "Fast, Nimble PDF Writer for Ruby"
- Henrik Nyh for the auto-print addition to Prawn, prawn-print.
- You need a Java Virtual Machine installed and set up in order to use this gem.
- Ghostscript to merge PDFs into a single document
- rjb >= 1.4.0
- builder >= 3.0.3
- activesupport >= 3.2.0
